Thread Name: Small Guitars?
Subject: RE: Small Guitars?
I picked up a "cheapo" parlour-sized guitar recently (Gremlin - made in China)- just out of curiosity. I own a Lowden, a top of range Norman and a Pro-series Simon & Patrick, so had no need for, nor any intention of buying, another guitar - certainly not one at 125!!

BUT - I was amazed at it's quality and sound. Solid top (spruce) with Tacoma back & sides - nice looking guitar - very solidly built/beautifully finished/quality tuners, and a woody sound reminiscent of Rob Johnson's blues guitar. I was hooked.

It's my "knock-about" guitar/slung over the shoulder/caseless/bagless cruising axe - with no worries if it gets bust or pinched - I'd just buy another.
